The Agia Sofia’S Axis. A Corridor Of Change And Resilience For Thessaloniki, Maria Ananiadou-Tzimopoulou, Sofia Tzimopoulou, Panagiota Mouratidou

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The paper dwells on greenways as natural and cultural corridors, and their value for the contemporary city change and resilience. Just after a short theoretical approach on urban landscape architecture related to the sustainability and urban resilience, we intend to present our project that won the second prize in the Panhellenic competition, organized by the Greek Ministry of Environment and Energy, for the redesign of Agia Sofia’ s axis, one of the main historical traces of Thessaloniki’ s urban landscape. This example supports our design approach, socio-ecological and perceptual, for landscape architectural projects, in both planning and design.

Green Belt Of Brescia, Lombardy. From Resilience Strategy To Sustainable Planning In Practice., Luca Maria Francesco Fabris, Guido Granello

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The paper focuses on the methods on which it is built the planning strategy for the ‘Parco delle Cave’ (Park of Pits) in Brescia (Lombardy, Italy). This research, begun in 2010 thanks to the insights offered by a master's degree thesis, in February 2016 led to the approval of the variation to Plan of Government of the Territory of the City of Brescia. The authors, at the time, respectively, supervisor and author of the thesis ‘Park of Pits, from protest to proposal' have gradually followed the different stages of approach to the proposed variant through a real multidisciplinary action ...


Climate Action Planning And Urban Greenways: Weaving Together Sustainability, Health And Resilience, David C. Ralston Jan 2016

Climate Action Planning And Urban Greenways: Weaving Together Sustainability, Health And Resilience, David C. Ralston

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Envisioning and planning citywide greenways and supporting urban greening (green infrastructure) linked to climate action planning are surprisingly not well integrated in sustainable planning initiatives and in fact represent two separate landscape action approaches and two different scales and disciplines of focus. By not being strategically integrated, cities are missing out on many significant environmental and social co-benefits that are especially needed at this time. Consider, the planning focus for greenways (especially in the US context) over the last forty-years has generally emerged from a landscape design and park planning tradition and thus we see various inter-city/regional or suburban ...
